Tellers
Description: Tellers work for banks, credit unions, and pension funds. They cash checks, make deposits and withdrawals, and accept loan payments. They use computers to keep records. Tellers begin work before the bank opens by counting the cash in their drawers and end the workday by accurately balancing their cash drawers with the day's receipts. They must be friendly with customers, even when customers are rude to them.
